Philippine leader Rodrigo Duterte advised his daughter against running to succeed him in the 2022 election, saying the presidency “Is not for women.”

In a televised speech on Thursday, the president said Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte “Is not running” in the next election even though a recent survey by Pulse Asia Research Inc. showed she was the top pick to succeed him.

India needs free, fair, non-hyphenated and questioning journalism even more as it faces multiple crises.

Duterte threatens to end US military pact if no vaccines “If they fail to deliver a minimum of 20 million vaccines, they better get out” : worldnews


The worst part? Because this fuck is a dictator too, Trump will bend over to appease him.

Wait to appease a dictator is generally a bad thing, but bringing 20 million doses of vaccine to the Philippines isn't that bad.

Look, by the end of 2021 the world will have made enough vaccines to dose about 1-2 billion people. If you ask me, you are prioritizing those who need it more.

I live in an area with a population density that is more than 300 times smaller than Manila. I would say they need it more than I do. I go weeks without seeing another soul and am happy with it. I want to give my referral to a Filipino.

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte says he could be held responsible for the thousands of killings under his anti-drugs crackdown and was ready to face charges : worldnews

ADVERTISEMENT.”If there’s killing there, I’m saying I’m the one … you can hold me responsible for anything, any death that has occurred in the execution of the drug war,” Duterte said.

Duterte said drug killings that did not happen during police operations should not be blamed on him, adding those deaths may have been set off by gang rivalries or settling of scores.

In 2018, a court convicted three police officers of murdering a 17-year-old student after witnesses and a security video disproved their claim that the suspect was shot after violently resisting, a common reason cited by police officers after drug suspects are killed.
